Diesel Black Gold is certainly in the mood for some heavy metal, which makes perfect sense given the brand’s history. Known for marrying forward-thinking, technologically advanced materials to traditional denim and low-key fits, the choice to show an ultra-reflective (but still very wearable) group of garments fits with Diesel’s DNA. And Bullett’s very own Art Director James Orlando caught the backstage fun with his own retro-inspired saturated shots, letting the models, well…shine.
The metal detailing showed up all over the spring items, from scaled patches to full on, disco-ball inspired pants and shorts. Shimmery leggings, gold-encrusted shoes, and mirrored leather jackets all resembled a world where the Jetsons have gone grunge. Backstage, the wet-look trend(seen last season on the Wang runway) continued with slicked back hair for both men and women, sticking with the casual-futuristic vibe (like the way we’d imagine a party 100 years from now, today).
